The Arizona Centennial Celebration downtown was a strange weekend-long event, throwing a Ferris wheel in along with a panel discussion of civil rights in Arizona, food trucks and a lot of music. Also, one of the biggest stars in kids' music (yes, there are stars beyond The Wiggles; the genre has come a long way in recent years) somehow played a free show as part of the festivities at the Fox Tucson Theatre, to a two-thirds-empty house on Feb. 12. The North Carolina hip-hop artist brought his family along, with his wife singing hooks, and his daughter roller-skating around. When the audience was invited to the stage for the last song, it became clear: It was a shame more parents didn't hear about this great show in advance.
